Unbeaten lightweight Thomas Mattice (11-0, 9 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over two-time ShoBox winner Rolando Chinea (15-2-1, 6 KOs). Chinea built up a big lead, but Mattice turned the tables in round seven with a big shot, then got the stoppage with a barrage of unanswered punches culminating with a knockdown. Time was 1:31.

Undefeated super lightweight Montana Love (9-0, 4 KOs) scored an eight round majority decision over Philadelphia prospect Sam Teah (12-2-1, 5 KOs). Scores were 78-74, 78-74, 76-76.
